It was a bit of a shock when I checked my phone at lunchtime on Wednesday, to find I had emails about my blog, a WordPress notification about a spike in stats, and a few dozen notifications from Twitter. I thought I must have been hacked but, no, I was instead featured on Guardian Teach as a top History teacher to follow on Twitter. Wow! I feel very honoured; I’m in illustrious company on that list.
Not much more to say than that, really – but things like this almost never happen so I wanted to mark it with a blog post, much like I might write it in a diary.
Here’s my favourite poppy picture by the way – I didn’t tweet this one.
I know the point of the installation is really the scale but I thought they were very lovely close up.
